Overpriced and unwelcoming

Having read reviews after booking and paying for this site, we were very anxious. At around £34 a night, I expected better. The site lacks care, it's dusty and very tightly packed in. Electricity is not great, my husband had to reset several times after it tripped out, there is one tap between numerous pitches, and pressure is poor, it took ten minutes to fill our 40ltr aquaroll. The views from our pitch were certainly good, however everyone else on the site came to look at the views, through our pitch. It was very noisy, with some very badly behaved children. A group of Dutch boys, armed with hammers, sat and dug huge holes in the middle of an already unkempt road. Deciding to use the laundry, I went to buy a token. There are two washing machines, one was broken for the 4 nights we were there. They only had one token for the other. So anyone needing to wash had to wait for the machine to be emptied and the token collected. I question the receptionist who gave a typically Gallic shrug. There is a restaurant on site, selling mainly pizza, chips and burgers. We paid around £30 for two pizzas and a carton of fries. The fries were inedible and the pizzas very disappointing. My husband went to empty the toilet cassette on our last day, it was full to the brim and swarming in flies. Again, reception showed no concern. It was dry whilst we were there, but we could see ruts in several pitches. It's a good base for exploring Saumur and the Loire valley but I'm sure there are better, cleaner, cheaper and friendlier sites.

Comment from the Site Owner:

Thank you for leaving a review. We made the acquisition from this campsite during the season 2016. It took us about 2 years to make and create the improvements we’ve planned for this campsite.

We finally could open the season 2018 with all the renovations done and complete.

Camping Huttopia Saumur is offering now a full renovated campsite with new sanitary blocks, new reception, new space and lounge room for the bar/restaurant, all kind of new facilities…

We are planning to create nice Nature environments across and around the campsite.

I hope you can visit again to enjoy all these improvements and hope to welcom you the next seasons.
